AirAsia is set to commence its inaugural flights to Singapore from Kuala Lumpur with two daily flights beginning Friday, 1 February 2008. To celebrate, the airline is offering fares starting from RM29.99 or Sin$13.99 for one way travel to Singapore from the Kuala Lumpur hub. In addition, the airline is giving away 30,000 free seats until Sunday, 13 January 2008 for travel period from 1 February 2008 to 25 October 2008. Fares quoted exclude airport taxes, surcharges and fees, and are applicable for one way travel only.

Dato Tony Fernandes, Group Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Berhad said, It is indeed a major milestone in the aviation industry for both countries and we are very thrilled to fly to Singapore from our Kuala Lumpur hub as it completes the missing link. We have invested a considerable amount of time and effort to overcome the challenges in making this possible, and this success further demonstrates our commitment to making air-travel convenient and affordable. Now, more than ever, everyone can fly for business or pleasure, to visit friends and relatives.

With more than 86 regional connections we currently serve and the ability to attract long-haul passengers from Singapore to our long-haul low-lost carrier, AirAsia X, we are confident that this route will be a definite hit with our guests, added Dato Tony. The Kuala Lumpur Singapore route is expected to provide AirAsia X greater access to a whole new market of cost-conscious travellers from across the region as more people are expected to make use of the cheap flights between Changi and Kuala Lumpur to connect to the international destinations serviced by AirAsia X.

This will have the effect of accelerating the growth of Kuala Lumpur as the region's low-cost hub, deemed to be one of the most lucrative in the region owing mostly to the very high frequency of business travellers. Therefore, we strongly hope to be granted an increase in our flight frequency in the near future and perhaps launch other destinations flying to Singapore such as from Penang, Kota Kinabalu or even Jakarta to cater to the huge demand, Dato Tony said.
